I'm a 30-yo single mom, bookish Minnesotan, and big coffee drinker who is looking for friends and support as I work toward being healthy and happier.

I've gained about 90lbs over the last 6 yrs & have been sporadically trying to take it off since my daughter was born in 2003. I was so worried that she'd be embarrassed of me and I wanted so much to take the weight off before she realized I was fat that I wasn't seeing the big picture. Now she's almost in kindergarten & I realized that if I'd stopped gaining weight and lost just a small about of weight each year--even as little as 10lbs--I would already be at my goal weight.

So I decided: screw the 1lb a week thing. My main goal is to lose 10% of my weight each year until I reach my goal weight, which will take me a full 5 years. Maybe I will lose more in the first year, or all of it in a couple of years, but the idea of 10% a year seems doable and realistic, and I feel really confident about it!
